Top Ten Savvies 2009 “Concentrated and pure mineral, gooseberry, red capsicum, passionfruit, box hedge and subtle nettle flavours. Powerful wine with character and considerable length.”
Bob Campbell, MW Taste Magazine, February 2010


"Among St. Clair’s 2009 range of block Savvies, this is among the sweatiest, with pungent nettle and almost-asparagus notes on the nose. Yet on the palate, the wine is full-bodied, round and concentrated, with nectarine and honey elements punched up by bright herbal tones. Long and intense on the finish. Drink now."
Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Sept 2010
